Man’s coffin too big for crematorium

THE grieving family of a 7ft 2in “gentle giant” have been told his coffin is too long to fit into local crematoriums.

Relatives of Graham Mellor, who died aged 72 a fortnight ago, now face a 35-mile journey from north Staffordshire to a larger crematorium near Burton-on-Trent which is able to accommodate the 7ft 9in casket.
